Enterprise Applications Designed Around People's Lives
I strive to design enterprise applications mainly for the people who use them rather than just for the administrators who run them or the executives who buy them. That is one of the reasons why I am very optimistic about the SAP Fiori set of HCM applications. I added a scene in my social and mobile innovations story and created a trailer to convey the importance of making the most commonly used applications simple to use and make them available from any device anywhere.
Real life use cases may not always be to take the day off and go for a picnic. It might be to take the day off and do some plumbing work or spend time with family. What ever the reason, the leave request app will be there when that personal decision is made and will help make life a bit easier for employees.
